Illinois workers compensation lawyers at Abels & Annes have signed on to represent and injured hospice worker. The accident took place on July 9, 2010 when our client injured her shoulder and back while at work.
At the time of the accident, the claimant was giving the patient a bath. The patient started to fall out of bed and the worker reached out and caught him, injuring herself in the process.
Initially the claimant hoped her pain would resolve on its own and did not go to the emergency room. However, after her pain did not go away over the next three days her employer referred her to a physician at Concentra in downtown Chicago. The injured worker is also following up with her own orthopedic physician.
Our client has had ongoing medical treatment since July. She is had an MRI, and has had injections in her shoulder.
The worker had shoulder surgery in 2006 to repair a torn rotator cuff. She is now very concerned with her current condition, in that she is having similar pain that she had prior to her previous surgery. It is not yet been determined that she will need additional surgery due to the current accident.
Chicago work comp attorneys at our firm signed up another new case last week when a restaurant worker badly lacerated her hand on the job.
